Todays starting temperature was 42 (F) 5 (C) with overcast skies and a fine misty rain falling from that sky
The trick was on me today for this Halloween 2014 as I saw no falcons at Seneca Towers or Hawkeye either before or after my watch and no Dot.Ca (DC). Somebody forgot to tell them that you’re supposed to go trick or treating at night!
I was late getting downtown (around 8:30) as I had to give a friend of mine a ride. I stopped on State St. across from the High Falls parking garage to check the Frontier Communications Tower from the north as I often do when entering downtown from Lake Ave./State St. I could see a falcon on the northeast cube so I went to the City Hall parking lot on Fitzhugh St. to check it out. She had her back to me but turned her head enough so I could positively ID her as Beauty. She was eating something for the first few minutes.
When Beauty was done eating she did some feaking and turned around briefly so I could see the the front of her. I was taping her at that time so no pics.
I left to look around for DC to no avail so I returned to watch the Beautyful one some more. I went to the Open Mission parking behind to see the front of Beauty but the back lighting was bad, making for dark photos.
Joyce thought she might have had DC over at the Brighton site yesterday so I took a ride over there and came up empty. Once again, I returned to watch the back of Beauty on the FCT for awhile longer. It was getting late and I was ready to end my watch but I wanted to check the elevator shaft of OCSR one more time for DC from the Radisson Hotel at Bragdon Place. He wasn’t up there but I could see Beauty over on FCT very well from there.
I left for home at Seneca Towers, checking Hawkeye on the way but as I said at the beginning of this report Billie and 99 were not seen. I ended my watch at 11am smiling for my Halloween treat of having an all Beauty watch!
